We added 2 upcoming events to our list. The annual York Jam takes place for the 28th time! Only 2 years left and York Jam is joining the 30+ club. This year the main jam will be on Sept 8 with a pre-jam on Sept 7.
One week later the Vic City Jam will take place on Sept 16 in Canada: "Join Victoria´s small but dedicated flat crew for a day of riding and hanging. Drinks and snacks and tons of fun! We´ll probably finish it off with food and drinks at a nearby pub. The spot is a ten-minute bike ride from the ferries."

Dub is a busy contest rider and traveller. Such a schedule doesn't make it easy to work on new combos or focus on video projects. He took some time to film his new 2018 links at different places around the world. There is a lot of amazing stuff in there. Enjoy!
"The PURO FLAT 2018 Series is my intention to stay true to the artform that comes through Flatland before simplification for competitions and all other forms of it may it be shows or whichever...this is just me and the camera (phone) for the sake of the artform!!!
As I compete and travel the World, finding the energy to give time for these edits has been a challenge. Here is a compilation of new tricks and / or combos filmed in Montreal, Shenzhen and Beijing throughout 2018 Spring season."
Congratulations to Alex on his victory at the first Battle Square contest in Rotterdam. If everything goes according to plan a series with 6 events will follow in 2019.

In exactly 1 month on September 2 and 3 the Labor Day Jam takes place in Oldsmar, Florida. A few words from the organizer: 'This year, we’re putting the “Free” back in #freestyle / 2 Days this time for those that can’t always make it out here on Mondays the last few years, Sunday is now part of the event. No Raffles, No Contests, No Trophies, JUST JAM!'

We've added a bunch of great events to our list today. First of all the Snipes Battle Square in Rotterdam, Netherlands on August 4. It's kind of a kick-off event for a series which will feature 7 events in 2019. The pro class of this first event seems to be invitation-only while the amateur class is open. Check out the press release for more information. We can't wait for the 2019 series - this project sounds very promising!
Next up is the Tartiflat jaminAnnecy, France at the first weekend of September. The concept evolves around French cheese, tricks and good humor: "On Saturday, jam and challenges at the spot of Les Villards-sur-Thônes: Reblochon and Tomme (local cheese) to win. Then in the evening, the aperitif and tartiflette will be served in the room near the spot. Sunday, hangover session at Paquier on Annecy lake sides."
The 9th edition of the KTGM Jam will take place on September 15 in Budapest, Hungary: "Riders from all around Europe will meet up on the huge spot of KTGM (3500m2, 38000ft2) for the weekend, crowned by the JAM on Saturday, to train, chill and get motivated. On Saturday afternoon, everyone can be part of the best trick contest. The top 3 riders can put their hands on the high-value prizes and the awesome trophies."
Straight outta Saga city - here are 15min of hardcore riding from the annual Saga No Run contest. It took place last weekend. For some reason this event is kind of under the radar for people from outside of Japan. It's taking place every year but it's hard to find information about it. However there is an article on the local newspaper (of course in Japanese) and this video of the 2018 pro finals. Enjoy!
The first round of the Overground Series took place in Brazil last week. Congratulations to Romulo Guerra on his first place in the pro class!
